In this full day camp, children (ages 8-16) spend half day in our Kodu Video Game Creation- the Race Car Style Game and then the second half- day is the Gamebuilder Video Game Creation- The Platform Game.  The camp director will determine which camp is in the AM and which is in the PM, depending on enrollment.  

Video Game Creation - Platform Style (Ages 8-16)
In this camp children build a game described as a "platform" game like Sonic or Mario. Children have a blast as their characters do the impossible, overcome obstacles and enemies and then conquer the Big Boss.  The character progresses on a long path (like a journey) with the background scrolling behind it and adversaries, prizes, obstacles, are encountered as it goes. Lessons on the basics will be similar to the Arcade course in the very beginning, but the class diverges and different programming techniques are taught in order to build this Platform game. This is a half-day program. Students can add an additional program to make it a full day camp.
Kodu Video Game Creation - Go–Kart Style (Ages 7-16)
Children will create something similar to a Mario Go-Kart style game. What fun! Campers begin by designing their own world. Worlds can have mountains, valleys, lakes, hills, etc. or they can be a design unlike anything you have ever seen before. It's totally up to them! Next they place characters into the world and program them to move about, interacting with other characters, even talking using scripts written for the characters. They can program characters to pick up objects, engage opponents, and overcome villains. Children will use their creativity as they build a world full of racing tasks. Whether it is collecting enough diamonds before time expires, navigating through the challenging obstacle course, or racing against a friend they are sure to have fun! This is a half-day program. Students can add an additional program to make it a full day camp.
